Efficiency is vital for a productive business.
Having the ability to create, collaborate and communicate seamlessly is the key to improving efficiency and performance in an organisation. Having access to productivity tools to ensure that staff can execute their jobs in a more proficient manner – and from any location – ensures that the organisation is flexible and dynamic in its operations and daily functioning.
Office 365 is an excellent productivity suite offered by Microsoft. With tools like Word, Exchange, Excel, SharePoint, Teams and more, your business has a range of tools as its disposal that is sure to enhance its performance and productivity – an essential factor in increasing the competitive advantage of your company.
Due to the reality that Office 365 is a cloud-based range of applications, the full-featured experience can be accessed from any remote location, on any device, as long as they’re online. The user-friendly tools in Office 365 work together seamlessly – an absolute must-have for any business.
Here are seven key benefits of Office 365 that you should keep in mind:
1 – Ability to access your files anywhere
Office 365 allows your organisation to store all your files in the cloud. Accessible on any device, from any location as long as a functioning internet connection exists. For organisations where remote working is essential, the ease of accessing all of the apps and files that you need when out of office premises is an invaluable tool.
2 – Guaranteed security in Cloud Storage
Office 365 is a totally secure environment with robust security measures in place, such as two-factor authentication, thereby ensuring that unauthorised people cannot access your files. This is still true even if someone has access to your actual device! Threat detection and anti-malware security are included in the service.
3 – Improved Communication
Office 365 gives users tools to keep communication centralised and straightforward across Skype and Outlook. This ensures that you can be in frequent and immediate contact with teams and colleagues, no matter the place or time.
4 – Predictable spend
Payment for Office 365 is on a per user, per month basis (I.e. on a subscription basis). The cost of your licence/s will depend on the level of functionality and the number of tools you choose for your business. As such, varying enterprise levels include varying applications and products, which therefore dictates the cost of each licence.
5 – Business Continuity
Regardless of what may happen to your physical devices, your emails, files and data are all safely stored in the cloud.
6 – Automatic upgrades
Apps such as Word, Excel and Outlook are included in the package and work online without the need to install any software. Upgrades are also performed automatically – less worry for you!
7 – Centralised Collaboration
Office 365 lets you share mailboxes, calendars, contacts and edit documents in real time through collaborative tools. More collaboration and communication means more accuracy, productivity and efficiency for everyone involved!
